In the age of a billionaire president with no real political experience, Mark Cuban, another billionaire with no real political experience, is being asked quite a bit about a prospective presidential bid.
And he's not ruling it out. During an interview on the Fox News show Objectified (airing Sunday), the Shark Tank personality and owner of the Dallas Mavericks said he's qualified to be commander in chief.
I think were going into a time where you need somebody who can connect to people and relate to people, and I think I qualify on each of those," Cuban told host Harvey Levin. He sidestepped the question of whether he'll actually run for president: "Whether or not Ill do itits a big decision."
The more noncommittal he got, the more he sounded like a politician:
I wouldnt run unless I have solutions. If I have solutions, then I have something to offer. If I dont, you wont see me anywhere near being a politician.
Though not a liberal, Cuban, 59, has been critical of President Donald Trump, and in 2015, he mused that he "could beat both Trump and Clinton" in the 2016 election. With his vast fortune and reality TV background, he has plenty of things in common with the 45th president, which would make for a bizarre 2020 showdown. (He has suggested he could run as an independent instead of a Democrat.)
It's not the first time he's teased a presidential bid. Earlier this month, Cuban said he was "seriously considering" a run for president, and that he would "definitely be running" if he were single.

So am I....................
I’m qualified too! I’m over 35 years old and a Natural Born Citizen.
Too bad the Constitution does not ban morons, that would eliminate Cuban.
Slightly more than Barry Soetoro, I guess. At least I think he’s a citizen - though it wouldn’t surprise me to find he has renounced it.
Ya beat maybe the entire login list of FR to it! And this dip think he is something special?
The LIB putz is “qualified” to be exiled.
These are Trump’s sons. He’s changed the game. This is part of why the Washingtonians are so worried that he’ll be successful.
He’s also qualified to dig out my old outhouse.
Maybe some think in the current Harvey climate that is destined to hang around a while that Markie will have a tough time with the Girls Gone Wild explanations.
Sorry, this is the era of the “never been tried” and “cool new idea”.
You came in second... Cuban. Trump was too fast for you.
He’s qualified to clean the dogshit in my yard.
Quoting Jar Jar Binks:
Meesa thinks Cuban issa green with envy.
I would not consider him at all. He thinks that all the “social stuff” in the Republican platform is really stupid.
One word pertaining to Mark Cuban: “Redacted.”
So... HELL NO!
Cuban is a dyed in the wood Hillary supporter
Like man, who’s gonna vote for you. Minor detail.
He is not qualified to be a Lewinsky dipped cigar!
